Current & upcoming Exhibits
FEBRUARY 1-25 | Something Old, Something New
Works by the Omaha Artist Association
Omaha Artists Inc. will display a colorful, and eye catching exhibit, where art in several different mediums will be exhibited. Participating artists will exhibit something “old”, (something created over 2 years ago, or something that they have already exhibited) and a new piece.
MARCH | Textiles by LucyJayne
Local artist, LucyJayne presents a collection of small quilts that experiment and play with color and design. Beads and other unexpected elements are often included in the works. The name LucyJayne comes from the artist’s personal history and honors the memory of her grandmother, who taught her the love of sewing.
APRIL | Art and the Holocaust
Institute for Holocaust Education
The Institute for Holocaust Education will display an exhibit of artwork from local middle school students. More than 800 middle school students from across Omaha studied the Holocaust and participated in the IHE’s visual art project. Selected student pieces will be on display. The artwork is based on coursework from the IHE in which students studied the victims of the
Holocaust and art from that era.
